King Spirits (rgyal po)

  • A class of male spirits, who are said to have assumed their particular forms through a preponderance of anger and hatred. Their many mundane forms are to be differentiated from the five supramundane forms of the protector deity Pehar (rgyal po sku lnga), which are respectively known as the kings of body, speech, mind, attributes and activities.
